Playing with Pencil Shavings

I found out about this fabulous artist, Marta Altes, from the author of the blog, “This Sydney Life“.  Like yesterday’s post, my resource is not categorized as an educational blog, but I immediately thought of classroom connections when I saw the artwork of Marta Altes.  I love the whimsy and the simple, but unique, quality of her artwork.  Displaying some of her pictures would be a great way to jumpstart some creative thinking in your classroom.  If you have ever used the creative thinking tool, S.C.A.M.P.E.R., you might see this as a perfect example of “Put it to another use”.  Can you imagine how some gifted students might run with this idea?
